Marlborough, MA

Marlborough, MA

Just a 30-minute drive from Boston, Marlborough is a charming community known for its historic neighborhoods and its growth as a biotech hub. The city of about 40,000 people has been at the ‘crossroads’ of travelers since 1660. Back in its early years, its inns and taverns were a welcome stopping point for people on the Boston Post Road. Today, Marlborough is located near the intersection of Routes 495, 290, 20 and the Massachusetts Turnpike. It’s a great place to live and close to nearly anything you’d need.

In addition to affordable housing of nearly every type—lofts and condos, historic homes, country acreages and modern apartment buildings, the city has several sports centers, parks and conservation land districts, and the 5.6 mile Assabet River Rail Trail, great for walkers, runners, and bicyclists. Marlborough has more than 100 restaurants, representing a number of cultures including Brazilian, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Japanese, and Italian.

This office is home to engineering and operations for the IMC software line.
